Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Adam Sandler's love of comedy began early. He heard many Rodney Dangerfield and Mel Brooks records when growing up and watched Marx Brothers movies. He developed the ability to "stretch" a story at an early age and actually liked to entertain more than he liked school even though he was not a bad student. This biography of Sandler follows his life from early days to the present. The author explains how Sandler started sharing his talents with others early on when he sang for nursing home occupants at age seven. The author has the ability to relate his message in a way that is understandable for teens. He discusses Sandler's failures as well as his successes and how he kept on striving for a goal. The style of writing is easy to read and offers the reader a broad look at Sandler's life. This book is different than previous books about Sandler because one of its main goals it to inform the reader about charitable causes the actor supports. It is from the "Celebrities with Heart" series that tells about the careers of celebrities as well as their good causes. End material includes a chronology of Sandler's life, two pages listing dates and titles of his films, chapter notes, resources, and an extensive index. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
